Description

Biologist and TV scientist Ben Garrod's fun, funny, informative and collectible series about dinosaurs, launching with T. Rex, Diplodocus and Triceratops. Ben Garrod's So You Think You Know About Dinosaurs? is fun, funny and informative. This highly collectible, pocket size series launches with Tyrannosaurus Rex, Diplodocus and Triceratops, with Velociraptor, Stegosaurus and Spinosaurus following in September 2018. Did you know that not all dinosaurs are green and scaly, some are ginger and feathered, or that they didn't all roar, they cooed like pigeons, or that the ultimate prehistoric predator is actually not a dinosaur? TV scientist, Dr Ben Garrod, is proud to be a geek as he mixes hard science and humour to prove that science is for everyone. All children know their dinosaurs but Ben encourages them to think differently, revealing how new discoveries and breakthroughs occur in science every day. By looking at the evolutionary arms race, prey, predators, place, time, groups and species, Ben reveals new-look dinosaurs.
